Posted by

April 19th 2015 is the 50th Academy of Country Music awards. Hosted by two fan favorites Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, the Academy have ensured a wide television audience by announcing performances by announcing that Garth Brooks, Christina Aguilera, Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts, will perform during the event. Many other Country and Western artists will also perform during the action packed show. Very few remember the winners of the awards handed out in 1966. “Man of the Year” was Roger Miller. Top Female vocalist was Bonnie Owens. Buck Owens was awarded the Top Male Vocalist honor while the best vocal group of the year was Bonnie Owens and Merle Haggard. The first events were held in Los Angeles, moved to Las Vegas in 2003, and to celebrate their 50th Anniversary the show this year will be from Cowboys Stadium, Arlington Texas. The stadium sold out with 18 minutes of tickets being available on line. A charity driven event, the charitable donations exceed eight million dollars . Five artist have won in the three most prestigious categories of Best New Artist, Top Artist, and Entertainer of the year. Merle Haggard, Barbara Mandrell, Mickey Gilley, Kenny Chesney, and Carrie Underwood. This years performer Garth Brooks has garnered the most individual awards with twenty one. Miranda Lambert is the most awarded Female artist garnering eighteen awards. Brooks and Dunn top the awards list with twenty seven awards including a consecutive eight years as Top Vocal Duo. This year’s nominees will carry on a fifty year tradition of excellence. The three top awards are all hotly contested. Male Vocalist of the year should be a battle between Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley. Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride should take the majority of the vote for Best Female Artist and Entertainer of the Year should be between Garth Brooks and Florida Georgia Line. With the public voting, anything is liable to happen. That is why we watch the show.
